He has a horrible rash on the inside of his arm. He was born with eczema and allergic to milk based formulas. When he was about 9 months I started giving him regular milk and he seemed fine. Now that he is 2 his eczema has recently gotten alot worse. It's on the inside of his arms mostly but spreads in other places. At first I thought it was from milk, so I switched it to soy. The rash cleared up a little bit, than when I sent him to his Grandma's for the weekend he came back with it worse than it has ever been before. I have been using Aquaphor and it has worked tremendously. Though this time it's not working as well. His rash seems to be spreading into bumps now. I'm worried about this rash being something more than just eczema. So if you have any advice let me know :)
Ps. I tried taking him to a dermatologist but I had to be referred by a doctor. And since I don't have a ride during the hours they are open I would have to walk so I can't really go see a doctor at the moment. So I'm just curious to what your opinions are.
